Gun violence is a growing problem among teens in America. One of the most frightening trends over the last several years has been the rise of gun-related violence at school. A number of reasons have been cited for the emergence of this disturbing phenomenon. Some of these include the widespread availability of guns, escalating levels of violence in video games and media violence, and rising levels of teen alienation and rage.
In this video, teens discuss: How safe do they feel at school? How easy is it for a student to bring a gun into school? How do they feel about guns at school? Have they ever been exposed to guns? What should a student do if they know someone is planning on carrying a gun or weapon into school? Are they influenced by media violence? Should teachers be armed?
A thought-provoking program providing an unbiased and realistic look from the perspective of teens. This video features young teenagers telling their real stories, in their own words. Comes with a downloadable Teacher’s Guide. (20 min.)
